7:18 am
students that need us the most for the students that deal with some of the most severe issues that most of us may not experience 2, 3, 4 life i'm proud to say that we actually had opportunity to work with some of the students you've heard speak tonight and students that have parents that are krartsdz on this resolution because we really wanted to make sure their voice were happier are had he e.r. heard we came up with solutions and responses i'm not take a lot of time but take the time to thank project what can the youth commission and hrc and san francisco children of incarcerated parents, dcyf and most of all our students for coming here and excited about the fact that when students walk into the schools we'll video a
7:19 am
better consciousness of what they're experiencing what they're going through and taking into consideration as we deal with them introduce the education system thank you all the students and thank sxhaept for taking the lead on putting this together it is very important and it will assist a lot of the students but argue administrators and school climate so thank you. >> commissioner wynns . >> (clapping.) >> >> thank you. i want to especially thank even e everything especially the students and tell you it is the things you said were so important so meaningful to us i'm sure all of us to me it is as commissioner vice president walton said it is difficult to know as much as we would like to know what is like to be a student and so those -
7:20 am
this kind of testimony is helps us actually beyond the idea of supporting what is before us which certainly i do and i'd like to ask that the authors to include all board members names but to particularly to say again how meaningful and tough that is how much respect i have for all of you who spoke today, i'm interested in whatever to do to meet the needs of students that may come after them so what you've done is important thank you. >> ms. fewer. >> yes. thank you to all the speakers i've known several is it so who's patterns were incarcerated and they've been in the system this resolution is over due i wish the board passed

something like that maybe 15 years ago when i think back now about the experiences of some of the people i knew their parents were incarcerated this can have been a good help thank you for coming up and advocates thank you for that concludes my report the youth. >> thank you. i want to thank the young people for coming out and sharing our stories with us for someone that has works on the case for many years and spent time with the children and understanding the dynamics that gone between children and parents of incarcerated youth the one thing that really struck me tonight we don't think about that for our own students and that when you're engaged in advocacy outside of your own
7:22 am
work you tend not to think about it when it comes closer to home i think a lot of what you shared tonight resonated in terms of how we need to not only as the adults in the classroom but the adults outside of the classroom and how we understand and recognize the challenges you are experiencing and going through that it is also really important for us to be able to have and really good understanding the training that occurs i mean it doesn't hit me to ask if you know if you're parents is incarcerated or if you're challenged because of you know this issue or that issue and i think we all needs to find ways to reach out appropriately and
7:23 am
to truly understand and right-hand turn the champions that you're faced with many of which we have a responsibility to support so i really appreciate having you come out and share really heartfelt stories i know are difficult to say out loud so i wanted to thank you for being willing to share and i just wanted to thank my colleagues for bringing this forward those are the kinds of conversations we as a district have been proud and bold on and those are not conversations are standard conversations in go school districts and they need to be because you are our students and we need to be able to support you and protect you and to understand what you're going through and so for that i'm really grateful thanks.
7:24 am
>> dr. murase. >> thank you to the colleagues for bringing this on or about forward and thank all the folks that came up to the microphone it takes courage to do so but i think it is amazing wharf impacts you can have by coming up to the microphone several of us reluctance toured the county jail in to see the conditions monthly to visit the 5 k charter school but you'll encourage the young people to advocate for these issues for that are ways to communicate with incarcerated parents and i would like to ask our commissioner secretary that i will be supporting this resolution if we could send a copy to our sheriff our new she have and probation chief to make sure they understand that we want to be meeting the needs of
7:25 am
children of incarcerated parents. >> delegate mr. totiano. >> i would, of course, like to thank all the students your powerful as a student being here it is not easy to speak on the podium this is not an easy topic to talk about thank you to project what as to you commissioner and the board of education for bringing this forward i this is topic that students don't realize it is something that is brought up but not sensitive i mean it the sensitive about there has been are many cases i know where i have many friends will have an incarcerated parents as well as a family of my own my own uncle i didn't get to meet - this district has a
7:26 am
responsibility over you all as well as the whole world ever adult does to sf students i'm sorry you guys were very brave for speaking this school is not just a place for educated i'd like to mention we should feel comfortable as students and being educated and just having a comfort ability in school is very important as this is nerve rocking to talk about. >> yes. i'd like tee echo that you know all those words have been said and i can't exactly find the right words to commend for all the supporters and the
7:27 am
board of education and all the speakers especially the youths i also have a similar story any partner mr. totiano i have an uncle i've never met he is incarcerated and he ended up committing suicide i'm or i've never met him before i don't exactly have the right words i know there is some - i feel bad because you know there are other issues that are similar to those kind of issues that is curiosity laid out right now in those this resolution we want to say what i actually try to do is you know like a similar issue i often noticed you know how in schools many students who may even have krartsdz parents or a family members i know at my school
7:28 am
especially at my tables our stakes are random in his i tried to reach out to those not to say introverted but bashful and shy i don't mean to treat them as my beginning i didn't pigs to get into their minds i feel bad i don't like to see or witness others to be - ousted from the community every single individual has many priorities you can't say reach out to every single individual but that is what i try to do and don't have the right words to think sorry i don't have the right words but grateful even when i see someone
7:29 am
witnesses an adversity so thank you for this resolution as well as pulling this forward . >> (clapping.) >> well, thank you to everyone that came out and spoke and the superintendent carranza's for sharing your stories and courage there was many students that spoke out and leading up to the creation of that resolution thank you project what and the youths commission especially, when we started the confusion about what we can do what school districts can do to support the children with this experience we needed all the folks that experienced if first hand so most of the thickness the resolution came griblg drainage from children and directly from
7:30 am
teachers and social workers this is about young people and their experiences in their schools and telling me we see them we want to understand them and support them that we believe in them and that the things they glow that are the hardest things we as a school district want to stand alongside and be if in solidarity and fight with them with with unimaginable experience that so many young people will understand or imagine having exercised my uncle was incarcerated growing up and many of us is the magnificent incarceration has touched everyone in some way in deep what is your especially children and many, many thousands of children here in our city so if there's any place he want you to feel understood
7:31 am
you have people that have our back and people that time to understand you and fight with you, we hope that is our schools in san francisco and you know the thing that i think is going to happen hopefully, we'll be able to make some 0 positive changes it address some of the things you've brought up tonight but the reversions of this conversation what incarceration does to children will be much further than that and see a reversal of what caused this putting 235r too many people parents in jail we're the first district that i know have to do that have a specific policy addressing students with incarcerated parents i want to appreciate the staff thomas that is head of the people's services
7:32 am
has done a tremendous amount of work and he really was a huge part of making this possible that is a process but as commissioner vice president walton said about tent outlet and recognizing we have a responsibility to you all and doing our work to address whatever we can do in our schools and need to do it with the support of all of you the human rights commission thank you for being here hopefully, this this is the beginning of the clove process and usf so we'll do this together and do this with the voices and the experience our young people as we work tonight so thank you, again, for big deal here. >> (clapping.) >> we'll add everyone's names and co-sponsors.
